Vans MTE is the byproduct of a lifetime spent outdoors, because Vans knows that the pursuit of your passions isn’t always accompanied by a fair-weather forecast. Rain, sleet, snow, mud, wind—nothing is going to stand between you and your next adventure. In fact, we like to think these all add a bit of flavor to the experience. It’s why Vans created MTE in the first place.
Activity-inspired and purpose-built, the Sk8-Hi MTE-1 builds upon their legendary high top with MTE-1 architecture so that you can stay protected from the elements with Vans classic styling. Delivering on a new promise of an all-weather shoe, this heritage silhouette features enhanced thermoregulation properties, the new HydroGuard Wrap for moisture management, a lightweight single-density UltraCush™ footbed, and our classic all-conditions rubber in a reverse waffle pattern for traction that keeps you covered from city streets to the uncharted outdoors.
Finished with durable water repellent-treated leather uppers, the Sk8-Hi MTE-1 brings an iconic Vans aesthetic to uncompromising cold weather comfort. Whether you find yourself bagging snowcapped peaks or braving a rain-soaked commute, you can set off with confidence knowing every stitch of your equipment is intentionally placed to provide ultimate versatility. After all, we know it was never about the destination. It’s about the stories you create along your journey.
